Welsh Premier League Cynghrair Bel Droid Cymru 2018 - 2019

jd welsh premier league logoJD welsh premier league logo welsh language versionDespite finishing as runners-up, Bangor City, one of the oldest and most successful of Welsh clubs, are absent this season having failed to have their WPL licence renewed due to a failure to meet required financial criteria. Their European licence was revoked at the same time so they could not take up the automatic place they had earned in the Europa League qualifiers. Immediately after the decision was announced in late April the club issued statements promising to fight the decision through the courts but after a few days wiser heads prevailed. Their focus now is to bounce back from the Huws Gray Cymru Alliance at the first attempt.

Prestatyn Town finished in a distant last place and were relegated to the Cymru Alliance after just one season in the top flight

Due to Bangor's demotion, Druids received a bye in the Europa League play-offs and beat Cardiff Met 1-0 in the final to earn a place in Europe for only the second time in their history. Unfortunately their adventure was a brief one as they were narrowly beaten by FK Trakai from Lithuania on aggregate. Last season's blue strip was worn in the away leg but was then replaced with a new Errea Jaro set for the WPL.
